Just been thinking of putting some of my best photo's up from my trip so far. In the end I went for a Fujix100, and have been absolutely chuffed with it. An absolutely delightful camera, and a snip at £300.
OpenC was correct, I would have loved a wider angle lens for many of the shots (sometimes my iphone took better photos!) but you have to learn how to position yourself, and sometimes you just have to accept you can't capture the beauty you see before you. Accepting the limitations of my equipment was useful, though, as it helps you know what you can and can't do. I was ultimately really glad that the camera looked 'classic' and old, as it wasn't conspicuous when taking photos in Tanzania and when carrying it around in less developed areas. Hopefully my photography has gotten better over the last 6 months, from never having owned a camera (even a point and shoot), to now.
The first few are from Tanzania (September - November):
Beach and Dhow, Zanzibar.
Food Market, Zanzibar.
Young Boy, Zanzibar.
"Will you take our photo please?" Lushoto, Tanzania.
Bananas! Moshi, Tz.
The Big Lad (kilimanjaro) Moshi, Tz.
Best Pizza in Tanzania. Tanga, Tz.
Night Skies. Zanzibar.
Lions. Ngorogoro Crater, Tz.
Chameleon (Ft. Me) Lushoto, Tz.
Doom. Ngorogoro Crater, Tz.
Anyway, go easy on me, this was the first month or so of owning the camera. I'll probably have to resize these. I need to learn one day I suppose.
